I had the soon-to-be-released (~August 2013) Redington Butter Stick out for the first time today -- I have the 7'6" 4-wt model. This new glass rod proved itself on the Tilton with a solid day of dry fly work. Put more than a dozen fish in the net, most were 10-12 inch cutthroats, with a handful of 8-10 inch rainbows. All were caught on dries -- #16 and #18 Elk Hair caddis and #14 royal stimulators. The Butter Stick proved to be a smooth, slick-casting rod able to accurately place flies with barely a ripple. I found it a little stiff through the butt, with good mid flex and a nice slow tip to really turn over the flies and drop them gently for a 'natural' presentation. I'm thinking this is going to be a great dry-fly stick for skinny water. Because I'm working on a review of "dry fly" rods, I also had an Orvis Superfine Touch (8-foot 4-wt) on the river. Donna used this most of the day -- I used it exclusively last weekend on a dry-fly day on the Yakima. The Superfine is a damn nice rod for precise, delicate fly presentations. It weights next to nothing, but sports enough backbone to fight heavy trout -- I had a couple 16" yakima rainbows on it last week. Both these rods, along with the Sage Circa (which I've already used and reviewed) and a few others I have yet to cast, while be part of a review package at GearInstitute.com -- full review will likely be published mid-july. Exact timing will depend on when my team of testers gets enough rivertime with all the rods. For now, I'll just say I think Redington is making a nice jump into the glass rod game, but Orvis' Superfines continue to be the rods that the others will have to catch in the 'best dry fly rod' class.
